The church and the cells of this very old and historical monastery are in very good condition. This monastery got its name from a miracle (as it is said by the inhabitants of Milos): some locals locked themselves in the church to escape from the pirates and prayed to Saint John to close the door with an iron bar. The prayer was answered and the pirates couldn't enter the church.
